How do I change the pre-print start position permanently on the UM2?

Recommended Posts

I have fitted a J-Head block to the UM2 almost successfully except for one more thing, I want to change the Y start position as when the printer is on warmup and the head moves to the front left it is hitting the front by about 15 mm. Do I have to change the firmware somewhere and re-upload to the UM2 or is there a command I can add within some config file somewhere? Thanks in advance!

You can change the printarea directly in the menu when you use the tinkergnome firmware, which is a good idea anyhow...


if you want specifically set a different start position in firmware, you'll find some clues here;

      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
